As FliesWithKiwiBird and the wee one will be driving madly around Florida during this year's Everglades Challenge, delivering SandyBottom's van to the finish line at Key Largo, I found myself without a blog-keeper for the six to seven days of the race.
But all was not lost! I have a fabulous friend and work colleague, David (with a new WaterTribe name of Floatsome), who will be my right-hand mouse. David will also be receiving my check-in phone calls and SPOT signals - hopefully not the Alert 9-1-1 - so will have absolute power over letting you all know just where I am and what I had for breakfast. Well, let's hope it'll be a bit more exciting than that.
Hopefully we'll also be seeing David competing in 2009's Everglades Challenge - he more than likely will be buying from me the Mirage 19 I have safely tucked away for him. A total fitness guru, David has more marathons, triathlons and an Ironman under his belt than you can poke a stick at.
BTW, that's David on the right, Brian in the middle, and me on the left, half-way through the 2006 Tour de Cure.
